What are sisters for?
A bloodcurdling scream
Is it a dream
It came from my sister's room
Something she needs I assume
Standing on her desk
looking totally grotesque
Pointig at a spider
Posing beside her
As big as a chair
With fangs like a bear
A body ready for battle
Huge eyes like lost cattle
Battle cries echoed
Unmistakenly in attack mode
Eight muscular legs, ready to jump
My brain starts clicking, " I have a trump"
Hey sis, for 5 bucks I can be your hero
You can stand here forever or let me deliver the deathblow
She agreed to the deal
All you heard was a squeal
One little splat
And the spider was dead
I'm 5 dollars richer
And always there to help my sister

Freedom
Freedom is a powerful thing. Freedom means (to me), that everyone can
do something that they want to without being judged or changed. However,
freedom does come with consequences, like having laws that need to
be followed, and being a nice person is an option, but you should follow
it, so people know that they can trust you. Freedom is a big part of
life that should be recognized, because it is not a right, it is a
privilege.

The freedom that I most enjoy, is that we can be ourselves, free,
open, etc. I like this freedom, because it tells a lot about my life.
I am allowed to be myself and enjoy my life. This freedom is very open
and it is very near to my heart. This freedom is not just given
though, people fight for it everyday and I really appreciate it.
Thinking, that people fight for my freedom everyday is truly amazing.

For this freedom to be alive, to be here, we have to thank a lot of
people! These important people are the military branches. They
sacrifice their lives everyday for this freedom. They deserve to have
praise, they deserve to be thanked. Which makes me really upset, is
that people don’t recognize the sacrifices that soldiers do, and they
don’t thank that, and that makes me really upset. People think that
freedom is just giving, it’s not it is fought for.

Willy, My Beta Fish
My fish Willy
Acts kind of silly
He is as shy as a mouse
He hardly ever leaves his house
When he sees other males
He puffs up his scales
Like a humangous whale
100ft from head to tail
With fangs like a bear
Everyone be aware
Of my scary beta fish
who lives in a glass dish
He may act kind of mean
But he is as sweet as a jelly bean.
